Vegan Baking Ingredients
Note: Packaging and ingredients can change over time, so please DOUBLE CHECK EVERYTHING, and let us know if you spot any changes or errors. We include products that state ‘may contain milk/egg’, i.e. they are at risk of cross-contamination during the manufacturing process. This is simply an allergy warning, but these products cannot be marked vegan by law. They are however, generally considered suitable for vegans.

Icing blocks clearly labelled if vegan – most if not all are vegan
Most of their own brand colours are vegan. I think its just the red that isn’t. Icing blocks, all vegan apart from chocolate I think. They are clearly labelled.
SUGAR AND CRUMBS
All vegan – all marked vegan except chocolate and Jaffa cake, but that is a may contains only. Available in Hobbycraft.
All colours are vegan except there edible liquid colours as they contain shellac.
Fruit syrup that is a great honey substitute and tastes like honey to me!

Most if not all of their own brand colours are vegan. Waitrose essential colours are natural and include plant based such as beetroot. Not sure if they are all vegan or not.

Fizzy Drink Cake Mix Method
If your using the fizzy drink with a packet cake mix method:
It is 100g mix to 60 ml of fizzy liquid for a mug cake and microwave for 90 seconds.
Or 500g mix to 300ml fizzy liquid and bake in oven.
The fizzy drink replaces an additional oil/egg.
Just pop powder mix in bowl, add fizzy liquid, mix and then bake.
You can make some great combinations as fizzy drinks come in such wonderful flavours.
